500 zł note and the process of Polish notes development: Challenges from a producer's perspective
The 500 zł note was put into circulation in February 2017. It finalizes the process of development of Polish circulation notes initiated in 2011. In the course of the project PWPW faced many challenges, including: re-designing, paper production and print processes. The key one was the introduction of the modern security features and upgrading the banknotes' functionality within a very restricted time limit, and meeting the highest quality standards and at the same time keeping as much as possible from the existing banknote design. The presentation will be focused on the main challenges faced (from the producer’s perspective) and lessons learned from the process.
